Here are the specs I expected:
1. 4.5" display, qHD resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass, Streo speakers, 8 MP camera with dual LED flash, 2 MP front facing camera, 2000 mAh battery, 1.2 Ghz processor with PowerVR SX544 MP2, all the important sensors, 64 GB expandable memory along with 8 GB of Internal memory, 1 GB RAM(DDR3), 10mm thick with a brand new design with premium feeling materials, not glossy plastic, multiwindow app, 1080p@30fps recording and with a price of around 300$ But sigh. Samsung is releasing same thing over and over again... Better to buy some other brand.

I don't know about the moving of apps to sd card. I'm just guessing they might provide that option in the future update. Also don't know about the heating issue. :)

You are also ignoring the heating problem in Xperia M and i understand the difference between hot and warm.

Also sony might provide the option of moving apps to sd card. They have provided that option in Xperia C. Galaxy S Duos 2 is good for the price and better than the old S Duos. But Xperia M has more advantages than S Duos 2. S Duos 2 and Xperia M is far better than the Galaxy Core. The Moto G is a good option.They might include charger and headset in the indian version. You are right about the service centers of motorola in india.

[deleted post]Future belongs to Micromax. They are improving and the latest example is Micromax Canvas Magnus. It looks so premium. Also, micromax is setting up its own assembling unit in India by Febraury 2014.
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2013 Mr. Mthu What do yo u say after the bashng of the samsung brand and trhe endorsemet of... moreWell, i owned XOLO phone and i accept that they provide one of the best hardware but their software is badly optimised. Also,i had some issues with the phone for which i went to service center and they took 27 days to fix the minor issue and that too after a lot of ifs and buts. I would rather go for Micromax Canvas Magnus but until Micromax improves their sevice centers, its not really possible.
What do yo u say after the bashng of the samsung brand and trhe endorsemet of the XOLO 800 phone? Is is advisable to purchase the XOLO phones? These days Lenovo A706, A369I are becoming extremely popular. What do you say in this regard?
I don't see what samsung is trying to do here lol is this a galaxy ace 3 or what?? minus the 230 mb ram difference omg samsung lmao I'm not hating though
For all those ppl who are saying that it has very low memory I wanna tell them that apps can be moved to the sd card!!!!!
do not buy sduos or sduos 2.....it lags too much !!!....better go for xolo q800....its about the same price with a quad core processor... 1gb ram and a qhd display and the battery backup and dual sim ssettings is good !!!!!.....i wasted my money already with sduos...going to exchange it with a q800 soon !!!
Droid, 07 Dec 2013Xperia M over S duos 2: 1.Better CPU and CPU 2.Dedicated camera button 3.HDR in camera 4.A... moreAll your points are valid. But its camera is really bad even after update and so no point of HDR. Also, not to forget that it heats up real bad if you play games or browse in 3g mode for just 10 minutes. I owned Sony Xperia M but finally ended up on OLX. I am not saying that S Duos 2 is the best handset but its good enough for the price. Also, Galaxy core looks fancy( although it has the same design) but its processor is weak. It cannot even shoot 720p videos. The other competitor is MOTO G but that too has some problems like- It does not come with Battery wall charger and headset. Also, memory is not expandable and battery is not removable. Thickness of the handset is 11.6mm. Also, not to forget that motorola has fewer or no service centers in india.

S duos price 11k is cheaper? Add 1k more u will get Xperia M which have bigger battery, Scratch resistence glass, sony given update for xperia M with for camera, screen clarity and some lags so no problem. Or add 2k more go for Galaxy core.
AnonD-132351, 07 Dec 2013My expectations were 8MP camera 2MP front 8GB storage expandable to 64GB Dual core 1.2GHz... moreBro, none of the so called reputed branded companies are offering so much at this price.
All those talking here about Moto G should know that it will be launched in India for Rs.13500. It does not come with Battery wall charger and headset. Also, memory is not expandable and battery is not removable. Thickness of the handset is 11.6mm. But, i do agree that it has better processor, bigger screen and gorilla glass. But, i think some prefer small screen and also price of Samsung galaxy S duos 2 is Rs.10500.
Also, not to forget that motorola has fewer or no service centers in india.
